CHRONOLOGICAL GAZETTEER OF THE WORKS OF E.W. PUGIN – ARCHITECT
By GJ Hyland – 11 March 2010
This article is undergoing continual refinement, and is updated periodically.
a) REALISED COMPLETE BUILDINGS & MAJOR ADDITIONS TO EXISTING BUILDINGS (9)
1] 1854—55: Stafford, Staffs. — Burton Manor (for Francis Whitgreave): in roof-space of the front gable was a chapel lit by a traceried window that originally contained stained glass by Béthune — now removed. The attractive wooden-framed spirelet that originally surmounted the octagonal tower is now dismantled; the building is now part of Stafford Grammar School.
3] 1858—62/3 (with J-B Béthune): Nr. Bruges, Belgium, 8210 — Kasteel van Loppem (for Baron Charles van Caloen): differs from the original (1856) design with J Murray owing to changes made by Béthune, at the request of Baron van Caloen & his wife, Countess Savina de Gourcy Serainchamps, to make it look more Flemish.
4] 1861—62: Ramsgate, Kent — St Gregory's (for Alfred Luck): became the St Augustine's Abbey school after 1867, when, for some time, it was known as St Gregory's College; 3-storey extension to the rear of 1871. Demolished 1973.
5] 1861—63: Bruges, Belgium — Kasteel St Michiels (for the Bishop of Bruges): summer residence in Groene Poort of the Rt Rev. J-B Malou. Executed (together with stained glass in 1863) by Béthune; demolished 1957. Given as Chateau de St Michel in EW Pugin's Obituary in The Building News.
6] 1861—c.65: Scarisbrick, Lancs — Work at Scarisbrick Hall (for Lady Scarisbrick): includes E. wing (incorporating a ground-floor chapel, the Blue Drawing Room, Lady Scarisbrick's bedroom, E. staircase), a dominating rebuild (now devoid of its original ornamental cresting) of AWN Pugin's Clock-tower (Figs.70), triple-turreted entrance to the stable-court (with which PP Pugin may later have been involved), conservatories and vineries. The Hall was occupied by members of the Scarisbrick family until 1946, when it became St Katherine's (C of E) College until 1964, after which it was home to several schools/colleges, the most recent (since Sept 2009) being Scarisbrick Hall School, and some restoration work is now being undertaken.
7] 1867: Leeds, W Yorks. — Meanwood House (for T Stewart Kennedy): now known as Meanwood Towers. The wooden-framed, centrally-heated extension (capable of holding 800 people) built in 1869 to house an organ is now demolished. The instrument was removed in 1877, first to St Peter's, Harrogate, and then, in 1879, to St Bartholomew's, Armley, Leeds where it still remains; the present case dates from 1879. The design of EW Pugin's original case is repeated at Stanbrook Abbey. The original tall ornamental chimney-stacks were much reduced in 1969 when they became unsafe. The property is now converted into flats. See True Principles, vol i(vii), 1998/9, and C Blaker, ibid, vol iii(ii), pp.44—46, 2005.
8] 1869: Kilburn, London — The Chimes (for the painter JR Herbert, RA): at the Kilburn end of West End Lane, on the Powell-Cotton Estate north of Quex Rd; demolished c.1899. House so named because one of Herbert's ancestors was a famous campanologist.
9] 1869—72: Leamington Spa, Warks. — Harrington House (for Maj. T Molyneux-Seel): an eclectic, 'modern' Gothic villa, not known as 'Harrington House' until 1876; demolished in 1967. Harrington was the family name of a Lancastrian ancestor of Molyneux-Seel — see also Huyton, Liverpool, St Agnes and Liverpool, Seel's Building.
i] pre-1862: Waterford, Ireland — The Manor of St John (for Sir Thomas Wyse): maybe a continuation of AWN Pugin's work here.
ii] 1866: Ramsgate, Kent — Houses: in Artillery Rd.
iii] 1867: Ramsgate, Kent — A classical (Italianate) block of houses (for HB Wilson, JP): in Victoria Terrace.
iv] 1869: Ramsgate, Kent — Houses: in Codrington Rd.
v] 1872: Ramsgate, Kent — A terrace of houses: in Albert Rd.
vi] nd: Grafton (near Clehonger), Herefords. — Farmhouse: possibly part of the Belmont estate of FR Wegg-Prosser, MP, FRAS (see also Clehonger, Herefordshire, Belmont House).
b) UNREALISED DESIGNS (3)
1] 1856 (with J Murray): Nr. Bruges, Belgium — Kasteel van Loppem: original design, predating that with Béthune.
2] 1871: London — Flats in Victoria Street: on both sides of Victoria St; intended for use by Members of Parliament.
3] nd: Adare, Co. Limerick, Ireland — Adare Manor (for Edwin Richard Wyndham-Quin — 3rd Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl): a commission inherited from AWN Pugin, but EW Pugin was replaced by PC Hardwick.
c) COMMISSIONS/WORKS NOTIFIED IN CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURAL JOURNALS AND ELSEWHERE, WHICH WERE EITHER ERRONEOUSLY ATTRIBUTED, OR FOR WHICH NO EVIDENCE OF EXECUTION HAS YET BEEN FOUND (2)
1] 1874: Northampton, Conneticut, USA — Gatehouse, Lodge, Mansion & Bridge, on the Estate of J Holland: part of a complex of buildings that includes a Votive Chapel; even the site has not yet been identified.
2] 1875: Denmark — Watergate & Mansion on the Estate of Count Kuth: the Watergate (in terracotta) is in Renaissance/Francois I style; the scheme involves also a bridge (in terracotta & stone) that links the island to the mainland.
